[Notre-Dame de Paris] Ringing in the new: a new set of bells for Notre-Dame’s towers

DSCF1257 DSCF1259Our first day in Paris we saw a motorcade parading some huge church bells. It turns out to be the new bells for the Cathedral at Notre Dame, part of the Church’s 850th Anniversary Celebration. It turns out that the replacement bells installed in the 1850’s after the revolution weren’t so great. Now the music will return. More on the story in the link below.

    Would love to be there to actually hear them ring in March. What a wonderful link to history.

  2. How wonderful that you are now housed directly across from Notre Dame.

      Hi Carrie, we miss you and Jeff! My beautiful orchid is doing splendidly. Thank you both for spending some of your precious time in Paris with us! Oh, and the restaurant right below us is open now so we are sure that will make a big difference in the temp in our apartment!
